7 Simple Ways to Show Your Employees Appreciation

With Valentines Day just a couple days away, I thought it was a great time to talk about employee appreciation. Whether you think Valentines Day is just a “Hallmark holiday” or not, it’s meant as a reminder to show those we love appreciation. But, what about those people who do not have anyone bribing them a card or flowers? 

You can fill that void by showing just how much you appreciate the work they do. Below are 7 simple ideas. 

1. A handwritten thank you note. 

2. A single flower and piece of candy. 

3. Recognize their hard work publicly on a work meeting.

4. Smile. Say hello. Ask about their family. 

5. Bring in donuts or have a pizza party lunch. 

6. Make a public post on social media for all your customers to see. 

7. Show them your listening. Offer a suggestion box.
